Hedge Funds Review reports that fund seed capital for 2011 is expected to hit more than $5 billion.  They report "Blackstone, the largest player in the hedge fund seeding business, has been an early mover. Its second hedge fund seeding vehicle, Strategic Alliance II, launched in early 2010. It plans to seed around 10 hedge funds with upwards of $100 million over the next two to three years.

 Meanwhile Infovest reports that though there is more money, there are fewer seeders.  

They also report, "Institutions are increasingly looking at seeding arrangements.  In the summer of 2010,  Rock Creek won a mandate from New York State Common Retirement Fund to manage the first installment of the pension’s new emerging manager program. Rock Creek is playing a key role in developing the emerging manager hedge fund portfolio, focusing on newer firms, firms with assets totaling less than $500 million, and women- and minority-owned fund management companies."
